Review
I tried eHarmony.com admittedly because the commercials were intriguing.

The personality profile was a welcome change to the stats-only process of most services, but as with any personality test, it got many things about me 180 degrees incorrect. It is imperfect, but I didn't think it was so far off that it was useless.

After going through the test, you get to see some of your potential matches. I had four matches that seemed alright, but did not meet my geographical requirements. I am in a small town (fewer than 40,000) so I was hoping to meet someone who was in the same predicament I was: small town, busy lifestyle, hates bars, not religious, new to the city, etc. The closest match to me was over 70 miles away. While this might not be a deal killer for some, it certainly adds a 30th dimension of compatibility that Dr. Warren's service doesn't seem to appreciate. It should have said that my 30 mile radius request could not be met & I should increase this range, but it did not.

Over the next five days, I did spark up communication with one woman (80 miles away), but after reading her reply to one of my open-ended questions, I stopped that one. Five days and 20+ "matches" later, I still had not been matched with anyone in my requested area. In fact, the service began showing matches that were over 120 miles away!

The one other problem that has been discussed here before is the lack of any type of physical requirements. Now, I'm not a shallow man and I have dated larger women and would do so again. I am; however, simply not physically attracted to women when they reach a certain body type. I am a slim, very physically fit person and it was reflected in my profile. Why they would match me with several women that were 200+ lbs. is beyond me. I am also only 5'7". Again, a taller woman doesn't concern me, but I find it hard to believe that a 5'10" woman would be particularly interested in a man who is 3" shorter in stocking feet. This is a fatal flaw that they need to address. Perhaps if this was included in the service, there would be a lower level of frustration for its members.

This might be a different and much more gracious review if I lived in a big city and truly did not care about physical traits. As it is, eHarmony.com is all but useless to me.
